Among the European countries, Romania is one of the most religious. Even if is a secular state, only 0.1% of the citizens declare themselves to be of no religion and/or atheist (data based on the 2002 census). Almost all of the citizens are Christians, affiliated with the Romanian Orthodox Church (86.7%), Roman Catholicism (4.7%), Protestantism (3.7%), Pentecostal denominations (1.5%) and the Romanian Greek-Catholic Church (0.9%). The school system is secular; however, following the religious revival after the fall of the communism, optional religious courses were introduced. The young are even more religious than the average Romanian.
